new Rebel Up Nightshop online (April) > #71 Quarantine show with 10 albums of the month!

This month’s Rebel Up Nightshop show (April 2020, via Radio Campus Bruxelles) is done in quarantine, home recorded as a big 2 hour mixtape with 10(!) albums of the month. Look out for some current candid COVID19 spoken word soundbites throughout the show as awareness or social political counteraction.

Starting with a psychedelic oriental tune by Baharat on Batov Records and followed by the new Ethiofunk-meets-dub album ‘Yene Mircha’ by Hailu Mergia on Awesome Tapes From Africa. After this, Argentinian outsider band Los Siquicos Literalenos and their experimental chamame folk sound out on Hive Mind Records and followed by the reissue of Peruvian Amazonian cumbia band Ranil Y Su Conjunto on Analog Africa, rare recordings from the 1970’s. We travel to Turkey via German Turkish migrant communities on the Uzelli Electro Saz compilation with psychedelic folk from 70’s & 80’s and followed by contemporary northern Greek folk music album by Evritiki Zygia on Teranga Beat label. Then we travel to Morocco, to the Master Musicians of Jajouka & Bachir Attar reissue on vinyl by Zehra label from a 1991 recording and we travel up into the Iberian peninsula for the compilation Codex Futura Vol.1 on Samain Music digital label with contemporary electronic folk music from Spain & Portugal. El Buho brings his new electronic latino album ‘Ramas’ on Wonderwheel label and we end the show in oriental electronic rave sounds via French duo Ko Shin Moon (‘Leila Nova’) on Akuphone and Palestinian duo Zenobia (‘Halak Halak’) on Crammed Discs.

Sat; 15 June; Rebel Up! Soundclash goes Rebetika @ OCCII, A´dam w/ The Kazatzikis (GR)

smoke a rebetika
This special night will begin in full rebetika style… plus let ´s also support the social protests in Istanbul at Taksim in sound!

The Kazatzikis (GR/ A’dam)
live show by Greek duo The Kazatzikis. Rebetika is the Greek blues from the 20’s and 30’s of last century, sung by Greek immigrants that were kicked out of Asia Minor and Turkey during the wars. Rebetika songs are all about the hard life of an immigrant in the harbours and ghettos of Thessaloniki and Athens, with heavy and dark lyrics that touch drugs, poverty, love drama’s and prostitution. The Kazatzikis will play these old sounds to bring us back to the times of immigrant woes and economic crisis, perhaps a familiar parallel to the present times. Their set will begin around 23:30, so please arrive on time!

followed before and after by these dj’s > >
